The communal nature of the event is part of what makes it so special, said Gwen Auwerda, executive director of Tulip Time. From the 800 volunteers that help with parades, planting, parking, litter pickup and so much more, the festival couldnt go on without Holland residents, Auwerda said. High school students volunteer annually to dance in wooden shoes and historic costumes in parades during Tulip Time, investing hours into learning the traditional steps and moves. Its the students and just the public in general they pitch in and embrace it, Auwerda said.

"Early-, mid- and late-blooming tulips are planted, so something is always blooming," explains Gwen Auwerda, executive director of the Tulip Time Festival. "Weather also determines what tulips bloom when."
The festival also pays tribute to the American Indians who were the first to call this area home. On May 2 and 3, Windmill Island Gardens is hosting the Historic Dutch Fair Trade, a re-enactment of meetings during which the Dutch and native people met to trade wares.
"It's a story that isn't always told," says Auwerda.
